    With the ongoing search and investigation of Monday the 13th accident in Ketchikan AK, this LA times article from 2015 that was written about the late Randy Sullivan, the Beaver pilot who lost his life.

    https://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-c1-alaska-float-pilot-20150102-story.html

    For me, as a FAAST Team Rep who hosts two VMC and IMC programs a month with a desire and goal of promoting pilot safety, the closing quote from Randy S. whom with
    "Logging over 11,000 hours of flight with a perfect safety record", touches me.

    "The trick is how you handle the scary moments," he said. "Can you buckle down and figure things out?"

    It looks like he did not have a chance this time.

    There’s already rumours and finger pointing going on, but I hope there is enough hard data recovered to pinpoint the real cause. With only witnesses on one aircraft, getting unbiased facts may not be easy.

    I fully expect they will point their fingers at the man who can not defend himself. Lets see, that man is well respected with ZERO marks on his safety record in over 11,000 hrs of flying.
    And the finger pointer is a company with multiple fatal crashes that are getting more frequent in recent years. Humm.

    Being that the aft fuselage on the Beaver was cut/broken apart in mid air, lets see what the investigation comes up with. Since recovery of the planes has started today I expect preliminary information will be available soon. There may also be data in some instrumentation that may tell a bit more of the story.

    Oh and as an edit I have not seen any new news today other than relating to recovery work. So my comments above might be right, or might be wrong, we will know soon.

    This just happened here a few hours ago.

    Two Ag-Cats, I'm told C models, went nearly head-on.
